3.4 out of 5

The Good - Given its prime location, Forbeswood Parklane sets the tone of what living in Bonifacio Global City could be but without the high price tag of other condos in the area. View of the nearby Manila Golf and Country Club has long been obstructed by the newer 8 Forbestown Road condo project.


The Bad - There are some design and maintenance issues, though these aren’t necessarily a game-breaker for the condo.


Property Management
Forbeswood Parklane is handled by First Oceanic Property Management (FOPM), a company that oversees property management of all of Megaworld’s condominium projects. Despite this, there are still some issues with the upkeep of the building conditions (like the exterior façade and the lighting of the corridors). However, the overall maintenance of the condo is generally favorable, from the reception area all the way to the elevators. What’s more, the people at the Forbeswood Parklane property management office are quite responsive to the needs and queries of the residents.
Security
The human security factor at Forbeswood Parklane is quite visible at the lobby as well as the driveway. Likewise, there are the requisite CCTVs scattered around the common areas like the reception, the corridors, and the driveway. To avoid problems of outsiders accessing the building via the parking levels, guests are not allowed to park inside the building. However, that doesn’t mean the residents themselves don’t have access to floors not their own.
Amenities
Like other condos, Forbeswood Parklane has standard features and areas within the condo itself, like a swimming pool, gym, sauna and spa, day care center, function rooms, a mail room, a business center, and a game room. However, they have also allotted separate elevator banks to address lower and higher levels of the condo towers.
Unit Quality
It’s interesting to note how Forbeswood Parklane is shaped, i.e. inter-connected towers with one set of elevators servicing what’s technically one building. However, they allotted separate banks of elevators—and these run pretty fast—so as to minimize the waiting time of residents. Likewise, the aesthetics of the reception area is nicely done. It’s interesting to note that the developer’s focused on smaller cuts with studio and 1-BR units in the majority per floor. The design of the units also features prominent beams on the ceiling, low ceiling, obtrusive aircon storage, and some dead space.
Location
Megaworld has managed to make a BGC township that’s separate from the Boni High Street/Serendra area dubbed the Forbes Town Center. Fortunately, Forbeswood Parklane doesn’t suffer from the noise and traffic generated by the commercial areas of the township while still being walking distance from these banks and restaurants. Likewise, it also has direct access to shops like Watson’s, Red Mango, McDonald’s and Max Restaurant.

I pay 30k/month for my unit on the 5th floor. It's an amazing location, and so it ends up being worth it for me. Also, the people at the front desk are my homies- even though they hardly speak English (I'm an expat). However, there is bad AC and cockroaches. I have to walk up the uphill driveway every time I get in, which does not make me feel like a baller. I'm not too familiar with pricing out here, but from my fellow workers, they say that I should probably be getting a little more bang for my buck. Also, most negative feelings would mostly be from my broker because he said it would be furnished, and it is not at all. So I would not blame Forbeswood Parklane for that. If you furnish your place well, it might end up being a better experience.

Forbeswood parklane has one of the most excellent group of guards, administration and maintenance people. Very accommodating, trust worthy and respectful. The Lobby also is such as refreshing sight after a long day at work. Very well structured and maintained. But the best thing right now about this condo is that the grocery store is just a 3 min walk away. Bad: Pool area is a little bit dull.
